Dear Bathroom Scale,

February 26, 2009

You and I don’t speak very often because frankly, I don’t like you. It’s not your straightforward mannerisms that bother me – in fact, I appreciate an honest opinion . But the issue here, Bathroom Scale, is that you have been tampering with the digits. Yesterday you delivered a report that was shocking and offensive but I trusted you and did my Taebo tape. Twice. Billy Blanks is very good but I am hesitant to believe that I lost 14 pounds overnight. That’s all I’m saying. It’s not your fault that I bought you at Canadian Tire for $11.99. That cannot be helped. However, I feel you’re using your origins as an excuse for this seedy behavior. I’m going to give you a few days and when you and I meet again, I will not be so mad if I am still running a 14 pound deficit. Just be consistent. Please and thank you.

with indignation,

    ha ha… I’ve had this happen to me too, but I was using someone else’s scale…. never switch from scale to scale haphazardly either as this has equally disastrous results.

    Don’t underestimate the power of Billy Blanks. He IS that good.

    OMG…I have read many, many blog posts, but THIS ONE…Oh, if only I had been so clever. I believe your scale and my scale were manufactured in the same place.
